Enjoy Fathom rain or shine - hang your coat and belongings in our holding room and play with peace of mind. Fret not on a cold or wet day!

IS IT PHYSICAL?

No, Fathom is a mental game, not a physical game. It is full of hands-on puzzles and tactile challenges, but you’ll find you'll have to use mental muscle and think your way out of this one, not overexertion.

CAN I PREPARE?

It can help to sharpen those wits and limber up the grey matter with some puzzles at home to get into the mindset, but all you’ll need on the day is your partners in crime and your brilliant self!

DOES EVERYONE ESCAPE?

Absolutely not! Fathom is designed to test your team and present a real challenge for you the player. Our game masters won't help by default, but if you're cutting it close, your team can choose to use our hint system for a nod in the right direction. if your time DOES run out, dooming you to an eternity in the watery depths, you can ask very nicely and perhaps we’ll let you out.

DO I WIN ANYTHING?

YOUR FREEDOM! Beating Fathom is about the experience of overcoming a challenge through teamwork - a feat not all who enter will accomplish. On a personal level the self gratification and satisfaction from solving the puzzle can be just as rewarding! We want all of our players to take away great memories of a positive experience, but bragging rights are definitely up for grabs - did your team escape in a leaderboard-worthy time?
